Weekend LAN

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Why not hire out a scout hall or such and get everyone settled there for a weekend of gaming and socialising? I'm happy to assist with networking requirements and other planning :)

    I have a decent sized garage that could easily fit 20-25 rigs, more if many use laptops, just need tables. plenty of power points strewn around too. Anyone around the Werribee area? You're welcome to come have a look, see if it suits. we also have a house which could "house" a few people XD

    I've had this idea myself, but not enough friends to justify it. I'm more than happy to help with networking equipment also such as an HP 24-port Gigabit switch.

    Hello!
    I am wondering what type of LAN party would it be a PC, xbox. etc?
    I see several people mentioning they play xbox. I will be happy to bring my xbox along and a TV (depends on driving range) and possibly several other people could bring along as well. 4 xbox's support up-to 16 players and it requires 4 TV's. For me it would depend on the date as well. Also this are the games that I have that can support 4 players on one TV: Halo Reach, Halo 4, Modern Warfare 2 and 3.
    About the places I don't really know much on that side of story for now, but would be interested to see what comes up.

  • Uken

    Hey guys im keen to come along and might be able to convince another guy too, but I wouldnt be able to make it on a Saturday until after 4pm because of work. Is it likely to be a later start?

    This is good kyle, was initially what we wanted. When you mean assisting with networking requirements, what can you do exactly? I found it very difficult to find a place with an internet connection.

    If you have some ideas about places or wanna do some research, this will go ahead, no problems.

    Thanks :)

      Also, internet isn't necessary as long as we're willing to not play games that require dedicated online servers (dota, sc, etc). Things like WC3, AOE, quake etc all can be run locally, so it shouldn't be a problem.

      Mmm, a lot of game these days don't come with LAN functionality.
